Nuclear energy comes from the energy inside each atom. In a nuclear reactor free neutrons hit a uranium atom and split it. New neutrons are set free and when they run into other uranium atoms they split them again. Atoms are made up of a nucleus with protons and neutrons-and electrons which revolve around the nucleus like the earth goes around the sun. Nuclear fission. An atom’s nucleus can be split apart. When this is done, a lot of energy is released. Albert Einstein, the world’s most famous scientist, said that you can get a lot of energy out of a small number of atoms. When this continues over and over again, you call it a chain reaction.

Nuclear power is the use of nuclear reactions that release nuclear energy to generate heat, which most frequently is then used in steam turbines to produce electricity in a nuclear power plant. Nuclear power can be obtained from nuclear fission, nuclear decay and nuclear fusion reactions. Presently, the vast majority of electricity from nuclear power is produced by nuclear fission of uranium and plutonium.
